Plans For Chiquita Apartments Revised After Being Criticized By Board

Miami’s UDRB reviewed revised plans yesterday for the proposed Chiquita North apartment complex next to Midtown Miami.

An attorney developer AMLI said that massing of the building has been broken down into two separate building connected at the rear for access to parking and amenities. Additional height has been added to further articulate the massing, and the buildings have a ‘push and pull’ effect for further articulation. The new design is sensitive to the surrounding community, which will be positively impacted by the project, he wrote.

In total, 492 apartment units and 819 parking spaces are proposed (a separate complex with additional units will be located next door). The project site is located at 3010 NE 2nd Avenue.

Zyscovich is the project architect.

Hence the question. Review board originally suggested something to the effect of an elevated walkway

Maybe the future TriRail station/platform can be built in that immediate area and incorporate a walkway.

Shessh….they are apartment buildings. I wish people like you in Miami would stop looking for “break the mold” architecture for an apartment building.

The fact they’re residential units further shows there’s a need to “break the mold.” I’m not saying every apartment building should be a Frank Gehry clump of untidy bed sheets, rather the good architecture before the market crashed. Miami’s best apartment buildings are Mediterranean Revival beauties from the roaring twenties. The Streamline Moderne Art Deco ones from the Great Depression are loved, but I’m certain that this cheap shit will not decades from now nor survive so long, hopefully not replaced with even worse buildings.

You’re not sure if you’ll be around decades from now to witness your speculation about this apartment project. These apartments are nice and the area they’re going in needs many more of them. This is a win win for MidTown and these apartments will differentiate the look of the area from the overly used “Mediterranean” architectural style of Coral Gables. More bodies are needed for this area and this project is a good start for getting them there.

People need to stop referencing Coral Gables. It builds the beautiful Mediterranean architecture which used to be the essence South Florida. The only issue is that it mostly builds said style. A healthy mix of styles anywhere is preferred, and frankly these apartments are an unhealthy indifferent dime a dozen built all over the area since the recession.
